“To me a bicycle is a machine of magic … taking me on to the ways of satisfied happiness; giving to me the good friendship I enjoy with others, and to share with me the delights and ecstasies of the outdoors. It gives to me the pleasures of mingling the past with the present … always discovering … always learning. Above all it gives to me also, memories to cherish and store inwardly, as I wheel my ways on joyous days … such a day has been today.” Albert Winstanley 1917-2012

Next Sheffield FridayNightRide
Friday 26 October 2018
Start: South St Kitchen, Park Hill, S2 5QX
6.30pm prompt

Sheffield Modern
Ride Leader: Mick

Sheffield FridayNightRide is delighted to have been asked by Our Favourite Places to contribute to Sheffield Modern – a weekend of discussing and viewing modernist sites and sights in Sheffield.
This short ride will take in not only iconic sites but the unsung sights; the ordinary as well as the celebrated.
Riders will be taken on a route designed to take a critical view about how urban space, transport, and accessibility have been affected by modernism and its subsequent development (or corruption?).

The ride will end by 7.30 at the Arts Tower
for the concert, Sheffield Modern: In C
Want to go to the concert?

More details on The Next Sheffield FNR
===================================================================================================================
Probs no more rides after that until after spring equinox, March 20 2019

There are lots of ideas for rides and they are on the Future Sheffield FNR page. If you want to turn one of these ideas into a ride or have ideas for another theme then let us know at sheffieldfridaynightride@gmail.com
So get on the email list (sheffieldfridaynightride@gmail.com) or like the fb page.
SFNR is also on twitter as @sheffieldfnr. Tweets are usually announcements only.

Cycle Maintenance classes throughout the year
The ever-popular ReCycleBikes cycle maintenance classes are now revised and bookable here
If you know what you’re doing and want a stand to work on, in the dry with good tools and expert advice on hand then you can do that in the bike kitchen

I think Russell’s Bike Shed, Bike ReHab and Evans also offer bike maintenance classes so contact them for details

Learn how to use the

Private Eye No. 1326 Lance Armstrong Puncture Repair outfit

Sheffield Cycle Jumble – May and October, book early if you want to have a table; it gets busy and is a great event to go to

Mark’s contact details are on the poster for the jumble if you want to book a table for a jumble.

More Rides
I get ride info sent to me from time to time and if you want to get out on your bikes more then …
don’t forget to look on these sites: local CTC site; the Sheffield Clarion Cycling Club;, the Steel City Riders; Ride Sheffield; Sheffield Shopper Society; No Balls Biking; Sheffield Women’s Cycling – see side bar Other Sheffield Rides for all these.

Should SFNR have an anthem? – this is a great modern Sheffield tune about Sheffielders and we can la la la as we pedal

The Times Cities fit for cycling Click on this logo, check out what it says, sign up if you want to. I know its News International, obviously linked to News Corp who sponsor all that cycling through SKY; but I think this is genuinely felt – shock that a colleague ordinarily commuting to work can be seriously injured through poor vehicle design and driver behaviour.

Cheer yourself up before the next ride – take a dekko at this

Fraternal/Sororal Rides: There used to be a London FridayNightRide www.fridaynightride.com (where I was inducted into the experience) sadly no more. If any body knows of another FNR like this one – there are other FNRs which cycle to the coast and all that kind of stuff but we are not into distance or endurance or power (I think we are in it for the joy of social urban riding and being a tourist in your own backyard) then I could maybe see if any other FNR wants to do a fraternal/sororal ride sometime in Sheffield and vice-versa.
